April 16, 2014

Meralco Bolts head coach Ryan Gregorio. Sports5 file/Pranz Kaeno BillonesAfter a solid campaign in the PLDT Home TVolution Commissioner’s Cup elimination round, the Meralco Bolts have that they are a dangerous squad that could beat any team on any given night.

“As far as the respect accorded to us by the other teams, I believe we’ve achieved that,” said Meralco coach Ryan Gregorio. “The fact alone that we compete and win against seasoned teams bolster my belief that we are headed towards the right direction.”

Darnell Jackson, who came in to reinforce the Bolts for the last three games of the elims, is aware of the talent level on the squad.
